Conserve acreage as a buffer against climate change

Land conservation helps protect our state’s most valuable natural resources - clean air, fresh water supply, vast forests, and natural habitats. 

From our coast to our mountains, Conservation Trust for North Carolina’s statewide impact is felt in the land we protect and the projects we launch.

Beyond the obvious conservation benefits, Conservation Trust for North Carolina’s land protection projects have an extra layer of building climate resilience. Each of our projects must have a larger climate impact. These impacts can be carbon sequestration by protecting forests, protecting habitats for struggling species, or adding a natural flood buffer for increased rainfall. Every project adds up so our people, wildlife, and land are more resilient in the face of climate change.

Our successes are not always instantaneous; through your unwavering support, we can preserve and protect the best parts of our state.
